Our trip to Oceanside, California

13 July 2010
Sparrow and I visited Oceanside/San Diego last week. It was awesome! Here are some highlights from our trip.

Drivin' thru Vegas!

On the 4th of July we went to church with Aunt Owly. First our church (we found an LDS ward in Laguna beach) and then Owly's church on the beach!

We went to Seaworld and saw this poor exhausted, depressed polar bear. It was pretty hilariously cute.

Great Grandma rescued Sparrow from the weird walrus.

Nana pulled Sparrow all through Seaworld in his wagon.

With three Mommies on the trip, things got a little...violent.

We threatened to leave whiny Sparrow with this cactus. Seriously, he had a hard time because he was so spoiled for most of the trip, dang kid. Plus he ate tons of crap and got very little sleep.

Luckily Nana still loves him.

We saw a sweet random little concert. Sparrow enjoyed the fiesta music.

We were all pretty tired. Except Sparrow. That kid runs on no sleep. It's ridiculous.

I spent like 20 minutes watching the wolves at the San Diego Zoo. I have about 50 pictures just of the wolves. WOLVES.

Sparrow preferred the polar bear.

We visited the grounds of the Newport Beach temple. I have about 50 pictures of this temple too. It was gorgeous, and such a pretty day to visit. We spent as much time on the grounds as we could before Sparrow started to get antsy. He tried to swim in the fountain. It was embarrassing.

Aunt Owly works very close to the temple, so we went to visit her for a few minutes. Sparrow was SO excited to see her, and was totally bummed after she left. Me too. We can't wait to visit her again soon!

The boy has got it made.

The last day, Sparrow woke up at FOUR THIRTY in the morning, so we left Las Vegas (where we stopped for a night) by 8 in the morning. We got breakfast from McDonald's. Sparrow decided his pancakes were better as hats than food. He is a strange child.

We had a good time and wish we were still there! It was all in the 60s last week and man, it was PERFECT. Now back to the Utah desert, where it has been 98. At least we're not in Baker, Nevada. We stopped there for gas and it was 119 degrees Fahrenheit. I thought I was going to die.

We love you California! See you again soon!

Sounds like a lovely trip. It would be so fun to go on a trip with just my mom and kids.

Yay! You're home! It looks like you had a great time.

My sister and I are going (with Jane) up to Seattle in a few weeks. It will be my first vacation in a long time. I'm so excited!
